Test Registration & Test Reviews
The BPS test review and registration process helps test users identify an appropriate test suitable for their needs. Over 160 tests have been reviewed by our Test Reviews editorial team, who are all BPS Chartered Psychologists and experts in the field of testing and test use.
Test publishers and test distributors in the UK submit their tests for registration and review on a voluntary basis.
Tests reviews are a full review of a test, reviewed independently by two Reviewers and two Editors against the European Federation of Psychologists Association (EFPA) Review Model for the Description and Evaluation of Psychological Tests.
Those tests that are awarded Registered Test status have met a certain standard in terms of the key EFPA criteria, including the quality of the test’s technical and user documentation, the quality of the test materials, the test’s validity, reliability, and the provision of norms or other information necessary for meaningful interpretation of scores.
Full reviews of tests are available free to members of the Register of Qualifications in Test Use (RQTU) and to Chartered and Graduate members of the BPS.
Summary test reviews are available free of charge to non-members. Non-members may purchase full reviews of tests for £15.20 per test review by contacting the Psychological Testing Centre on 0116 252 9530.
